From the January 6 edition of Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Trevor Noah:
TREVOR NOAH: See that thing you're feeling right now, that pain in your chest that comes from watching someone weep on national television, because he knows that society can do better than to file the shooting of children under '**** happens?' That feeling is how you know that you're human. No matter how opposed to Obama's policies some people may be, or how cynical their politics, they have to at least acknowledge and respect the raw authenticity of that emotion. Or so you would think.
ANDREA TANTAROS: I would check that podium for like a raw onion, or some no more tears. I just, it's not really believable.
NOAH: Are you ****ing kidding me? Shedding tears when you think of murdered children is not really believable? You know what? There is something here that is not really believable, the fact that the rest of us have to share the title of human being with you.
